Statutory Responsibilities

Shoreham Port Board

The Shoreham Port Board meets regularly to fulfil the commercial, operational and strategic requirements of the Port.

Board members act independently of any stakeholder group or any outside organisation, as the aim is to ensure the long term viability of the Port. The Chairman and Deputy Chair are elected by Board Members and special Standing Committees are in place to audit the accounts of the Port and evaluate remuneration for the Chief Executive and Board Members.

Shoreham Port’s Board has been established in accordance with the Nolan guidelines of good governance.The Board consists of 7 non-executive members and the Chief Executive. All non-executive appointments are openly advertised against specific criteria and each member serves a 3 year term.

Separate boards have been set up for the Port's subsidiary companies – Sussex Port Forwarding Limited, the Port of Shoreham Trustee Company Limited and Shoreham Port Developments and Investments Limited.

A Local Authority Liaison Committee and a Port Users group have also been established to provide a mechanism by which key stakeholders can formally communicate with Port representatives. In addition, a Public Meeting is held each year, where stakeholders and interested members of the public can gain information about the Port’s work, activities, performance and future plans.
